When it comes to your Volvo S60, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your S60 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get S60 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 2003 Volvo S60!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Volvo themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your S60's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 2003 Volvo S60 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Volvo S60

Bring your 2003 Volvo S60 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your S60's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Could your 2003 Volvo S60 be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Volvo S60 battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Volvo S60 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 2003 Volvo S60's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 2003 S60. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 2003 Volvo S60.

Routine upkeep for your Volvo S60 suspension and steering system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Volvo S60's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Volvo S60 maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Volvo S60’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

Take an active role in maintaining your 2003 Volvo S60. Get answers to common Volvo S60 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Volvo S60? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Volvo S60 need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Volvo S60 engines.
  •  Why are my Volvo dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Volvo S60 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
